A short felicitation programme was held. Donors, Engineer and contractor were felicitated on this occasion.

Bishop addressed the gathering and said "The church is the first sanctuary for Christians. The cemetery is the second holy place because it is customary for us to come here to pray for the relatives of each family's relatives," There is a tradition of beautifying the graves in foreign lands with a flower garden and the same practice is taking place in our territory. He said it was necessary to maintain the sanctity of the burial site.

Rev. Fr Canute Noronha welcomed the gathering and proposed vote of thanks.
